in correspondence courses, all that was done was to print the lectures taken by teachers and then send them by post.
Distance Education - the material is specially designed to build a surrogate teacher to guide the student to learn. A number of activities and feedback mechanisms are included and a component of distance teaching is included as well.

Correspondence and Distance Education are same.. nothing difference between these two words.
If your doing Correspondence/Distance Education, you will not go to college, Instead you will study by your self.(or you can go for some learning center also for some subject which one is not so clear to you). But its not a regular college and there is no attendance for it.
So people who are doing Correspondence/Distance Education can go for job and also complete their studies.

Distance education, or distance learning, is a field of education that focuses on the pedagogy and andragogy, technology, and instructional systems design that aim to deliver education to students who are not physically "on site".
whereas correspondence is method of providing education for nonresident students, primarily adults, who receive lessons and exercises through the mails or some other device and, upon completion, return them for analysis, criticism, and grading. It is extensively used by business and industry in training programs, by men and women in the armed forces, and by the governments of many nations as part of their educational program. It supplements other forms of education and makes independent study programs readily available.
